It would appear after being at I-240 between Douglas and Western for years, Eskridge Honda has filed a permit for a new dealership at SW89th and I-35. My guess is somewhere in vicinity to Bob Moore Ford.

When I was at Eskridge last month, they said it was delayed because Honda changed the design.

That is good news since I-240 is a little far

The place has been under construction for *at least* a year. Maybe more.

They actually just filed a revised building permit yesterday (2/1/23). Hopefully this means construction will resume.

I remember when they had Eskridge Oldsmobile. They've been around a long time.

More information on this newer style of dealership from Honda, I think Eskridge Honda will be the first of this type in the state, or at least the metro, looks like the change in design is in response to what changed during the past few years with Covid, chip shortages, and emphasis on EV vehicles in addition to gasoline and hybrids:

Bob Howard, Fowler, Battison, and the current Eskridge Honda all feature the big cylinder style entrance with the Honda "H" above.

I've been wondering what this was going to be. It looks like a tiny parking garage.
